The Pistons made the Spurs look rather ordinary tonight. Duncan and company were thoroughly outplayed much of the game as Detroit played its typical first to 80 wins style of basketball, gather some easy buckets along the way to a whopping 96 points. The Spurs looked flat and uninspired. Were they happy to be up 2-0? Maybe they're just playing for 1 win in Detroit and if not tonight they have 2 more chances? Of course none of this matters if the boys from Motown dont sweep at home as going back to San Antone needing 2 wins would be a tall task.
In another ordinary performance, the Rangers were beat at their own game of long ball by the Braves who chased Pedro Astacio after just 4 1/3 innings. Braves pitcher, Jorge Sosa, starting his first major league game, put up 5 good innings as the struggling Rangers managed just 6 hits in the first 7 innings and 9 for the game. Ugh. With the feast or famine approach, I'd be shocked if the Rangers have won a game scoring less than 4 runs... I'll check into that stat. Meanwhile, its time to go root for the Nationals to knock of the Angels!
